The latest Linux distribution benchmarks to share at Phoronix are a comparison of Manjaro Linux 0.8.8, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in its current development state, openSUSE 13.1, and Fedora 20. All tests were done from an Intel Core i5 4670 Haswell system to look at the current state of various Linux distributions when it comes to various areas of open-source performance.

All of these Linux distributions were tested "out of the box" on an Intel Core i5 4670 "Haswell" system with HD Graphics 4600 with 8GB of DDR3 RAM, an MSI B85M-P33 motherboard, and 64GB SanDisk SSD. The Linux operating systems benchmarked include:

- Manjaro Linux 0.8.8 (the popular and easy-to-use Arch Linux based platform)
- Ubuntu 13.10
- Ubuntu 14.04 as of 28 January 2014
- openSUSE 13.1
- Fedora 20
- Fedora 20 + Updates (Since Fedora sends down stable updates of new kernel versions, etc compared to most tier-one distributions that are less liberal with updates.)

Here's all the important system information:

The system hardware didn't change at all during testing and the software was left in its stock configuration.

All of this benchmarking was handled via our Phoronix Test Suite open-source automated benchmarking software that works not only on nearly all Linux distributions but also BSD, Windows, OS X, Solaris, and even GNU Hurd.
